09:26 AM ET 08.22 | Sources at Toronto FC have confirmed that Designated Player Mista was in a fit after being substituted at halftime of Saturday's loss against the New York Red Bulls. After the game, TFC head coach Preki said bringing Mista out of the game was a tactical move, as the Spaniard had a difficult go of it in the first 45 minutes. Preki went on to say Mista was dealing with "issues" concerning his health and that his high-priced striker may not make the trip to Panama for TFC???s CONCACAF Champions League game Tuesday. The suggestion that Mista is, or was, injured seems to be a complete fabrication. Mista did not return to the bench after halftime, raising an immediate red flag. Ten minutes into the second half, I questioned a TFC official about whether the Spaniard had picked up an injury. After looking into the situation, I was told there was no injury to speak of. "Nope, not injured. I think he's showering," the official said. So either Mista picked up an injury in the shower or Preki is not telling the truth.

ooooooookaaaayyyyyy.... maybe "issues" concerning his "health" are more related to his "fitness" rather than a potential "injury"...

???That's a game we should really win and take three points...??? ~ Bruce Arena - well, you lost Mr. Hall of Fame ... don't you have to win a bunch of stuff, make a serious contribution, be an irreplaceable figure and THEN retire before you get into a Hall of Fame in America?

LOL, Beat me to it.

I was going to go down the speculating about what what he might have injured in the shower route.

This it, eh?

Here's D-Wreck's Breaking Soccer News. Far more entertaining, but not funnier than this story--how could it be:

Wow, it's after 9 am PST and there's no new T&R? That's pretty sad.

Must not want us commenting on the dead animal that is the EPL. Here's a free tip: even the SC Freiburg v St Pauli game in the Bundesliga was way more entertaining than watching average offenses be "clinical" against teams that didn't show up. I counted 5 teams who didn't want to be there this weekend.
